When you’re looking for hard-charging night out, Columbus has you covered. Find live music any night of the week, local drinks at watering holes all across the city, and an accessible, diverse art scene that leaves many bigger cities envious.
One of the most popular areas of Columbus’ nightlife scene is the Short North. This refers to an area just north of downtown Columbus populated with bars, art galleries, restaurants, shopping, and more. There are plenty of unique spots to visit, but one local favorite is Brothers Drake Meadery & Bar. They handcraft meads—wine made from honey—using high-quality local ingredients whenever possible. Spend a night trying out their special brews and listening to great local music at the same time.
